GTA Coming to the Wii?

September 5, 2008 -

Are Nico Bellic and Liberty City coming to the Wii?

Take-Two CEO Ben Feder (left) wouldn't say yes and wouldn't say no during yesterday's conference call to discuss T2's third quarter financial results. As reported by MCVUK, here are Feder's comments:

With respect to GTA Chinatown I will tell you that we’ve spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo and developing that partnership. We’re very proud of the partnership that we have to date.

 

We continue to build that relationship. We think we have significant value to add to that partnership and that’s not a one-way relationship in any way. GTA Chinatown Wars is not even the first step but certainly an important step in continuing to develop that relationship.

 

So without commenting on whether GTA specifically whether it is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together. Nintendo and Rockstar are beginning to work well together and we intend to continue to grow that relationship.

GTA Chinatown, of course, is the DS title revealed by Nintendo at E3. No release date has been specified.

Any decision to move GTA to the Wii would likely be based on technology as opposed to residual queasiness over Nintendo's "family friendly" image. After all, the Wii has already been graced with Manhunt 2. The controversial Madworld is in the pipeline.

From a tech perspective, it would seem quite the challenged to get, say, GTA IV on the Wii, given the system's limited storage capacity. So perhaps if the GTA franchise does make it to the Wii, it will be a system-specific title.

Dennis McCauley, you're a fraud.  You have a posting policy below, and yet here you have allowed some idiot to use the F word above, and you allowed the assertion here that I am a homosexual.  Grow up.

Shut the fuck up.  You break those policies with nearly ever single one of your posts.  And yet Dennis has shown you more patience than most people would have shown you.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

If a GTA game does come to the Wii, it would be about fucking time. And it is possible to put something like GTA IV on it if possible. Look at the Wii version of Dead Rising coming out.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA4Wii? I'd buy it...if nothing else, just to see what all the fuss is about.

Anyone know if there's a SMG in the game(s)?

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

 

No, GTA 4 is too big for a Wii Optical Disc.  But I think they may re-port (remake and port) GTA 3, Vice City,or San Andreas for the Wii.  I did read that they wanted to make a port of GTA 3 for the Gamecube but that failed.  So I think this maybe the first time GTA3 appear on a Nintendo console (well, not counting GTA Advance).  It's possible Vice City may appear on this console also.  Same thing for San Andreas.  But it's kind of nice to see GTA3 series on a Nintendo console. 

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA for Wii could work as long as they focus on it and make it as good as the PS2 games. The Wii may not have the horse power of the X-Box and PS3, but it's got more than enough to run a GTA game. But if it's a quick cash-in, there's no way it will run well on the Wii hardware.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Dead Rising is also coming to the Wii.

But, GTA IV? Seriously? Come on. Sure it, would be a gold mine for Nintendo, but for the rest of us it would be a bad game. Like it said up there; the Wii has puny tech specs compared to the 360 and PS3.

My suggestion. Make an original GTA game for the Wii.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Will they fix the shooting for it?  I don't know how they could screw that up for the Wii, but some companies have surprised me before I must admit.

I actually expect this game to do well if they do go Wii, but I respect the fact of keeping it to the other consoles instead, and not going the EA type route and create a GTA for Wii, GTA Street Racing, GTA Cooking with Tony....

Jack's worst nightmare comes true....GTA interactive on the Wii....

No, actually, he's likely been praying for this as his "ultimate proof"

Big PermI think you can mecha. Unless it's just removing it from your UI and still tracking it behind the scenes08/04/2015 - 9:11pm
MechaTama31It would be nice if Youtube just let you delete a video from your history, like Netflix does.08/04/2015 - 9:09pm
black mantaF3 and NV have long been since fixed. They run great on Windows 8 and 8.1. And there's also the Unofficial Patch for F3 and the Mission Mojave patch for NV in case they don't.08/04/2015 - 9:05pm
MattsworknameYeah Big, but for those who had the game for long times, it is to late for that08/04/2015 - 8:43pm
Big PermNow that steam refunds are a thing, I'd hope they care more about not releasing a buggy mess.08/04/2015 - 8:34pm
MattsworknameI really think someone should get on bethesda abotu this and find out if there gonna fix it for the anthology, and if those fixs will be provide to those who already own the software on steam08/04/2015 - 8:24pm
Mattsworknamethey fix it, I fear this is gonna be a problem cause it means 2 games will be nearly unusa le for a large number of those buying the game08/04/2015 - 8:23pm
MattsworknameSo, I have a concern. Im super pumped for fallout 4, but I noticed bethesda is also selling an anthology. Which is a great idea, save that both Fallout 3 and New vegas are near unusable on anything paste windows 7, and even on 7 it's a buggy mess. Unless08/04/2015 - 8:22pm
benohawkI've had no issues so far08/04/2015 - 6:45pm
MattsworknameSame here so far, minus some issues with a few old games, it's been solid for me. I do think they need to adjust some of the interface in the start menu, but I can work with it08/04/2015 - 5:56pm
Matthew WilsonI like it, havent had any major issues.08/04/2015 - 5:45pm
